MUNCIE — A Muncie man was robbed by the gun he was attempting to buy from an acquaintance, who held him up early Thursday.I've suspected that all the best bargains are at midnight to 1:00 am.
The suspect, who was known as Sam, is wanted by police for armed robbery following the incident around 3 a.m. in the 1800 block of West Adams Street.
The victim told police officers that he and his brother picked up a friend of his brother’s from Millennium Place and they went together to get the money from an ATM to buy the gun. Instead of selling the gun, the suspect pointed it at the brothers, took their money and fled the scene.

3:00 am wakeup call
Suppose you're out in the early morning hours, cruising with your brother and you get that irresistible urge to purchase a firearm. One might suggest getting a good night's sleep and then making a trip to a local gun shop or sporting goods store. On the other hand calling up someone you barely know to make your purchase after withdrawing your money from an ATM at 3:00 am, might sound like a good idea for some. But it's probably not the best idea. Gun purchase ends in robbery
